The first ever Cybi Coastal Marathon will take place on Saturday 4th August 2018. Circumnavigating Ynys Cybi on the Welsh national coastal footpath and Anglesey coastal path. Cybi Coastal is hoping to establish itself as one of the most scenic marathons in the UK. With a limit of 200 runners, we hope this event will attract participants from across the UK who will come to compete alongside local runners on this fantastic route. Due to the nature of this event, we have set a minimum age limit of 18 years of age on the day of the race.
The Cybi Coastal will be partially way-marked and will follow the paths, tracks, beaches and coastline of the Welsh national/Anglesey Coastal Path. The entire route passes through magnificent coastline scenery with fine views of wide bays, sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs, the famous South Stack lighthouse and the summit of Holyhead Mountain.
Participants will be chip timed by our timing partner and we will provide split times and finish times for all participants after the event.
Starting in the port town of Holyhead this race takes you on a variety of surfaces. Easy going paved paths, a small amount of road sections, sandy beaches, fields and single tracks. Tricky cliff tops and with a few good hill climbs and to top it all off a short sharp climb to the top of Holyhead Mountain and back down to sea level. Depending on the weather, this course can be very muddy and trail shoes are highly recommended.
